|Junk drawers are bad enough, but a junk cabinet is just over the top!|
Here is what my formerly overflowing cabinet shelves look like now.
To get my cabinet to this point I got rid of some things, but mostly I moved things to areas that were more sensible. We somehow ended up with a LOT of water balloons. I limited the number of balloons that we kept to what would fit into a clear plastic storage container (recently purged from the kitchen) and then moved them out to the garage for easy access once the summer heat is upon us. I moved the pet care products that I don't need on a regular basis to my laundry room where I keep the rest of their "stuff". And so on and so on. I can now actually get to everything in this cabinet and I'm not worried about causing an avalanche whenever I open the door.
I still have more work to do in my pantry and refrigerator. Mostly I just need to clean shelves, etc. because Running Man cleared out any science experiments from the fridge last week and - honestly - I really need to go the grocery store so there's not that much in there. Just for fun, here's a little look at some of what came out of my kitchen during a recent purge.

I'm linking up to Tsh's results post over at Simple Mom...stop on by to be inspired by everyone's hard work!
